    VFA-106, the Gladiators, were homeported at NAS Cecil Field, FL when I was there in the mid 90s. Brac closed Cecil and the squadron moved to Oceana. I lived two miles from NAS Oceana as well and loved the sound of freedom. Hopefully no fatalities come from this.

    No casualties? Nobody seriously hurt?

    Ok, good.

    BTW an Air Force pilot would never allow something like this to happen.

    :D

    I was with VFA-131 Wildcats until Feb '93, just before they closed Cecil, and I thought it was a bad idea as there was a clear flight path to get out to the bombing range and down to Key West.

    Oceana already had scores of other squadrons up there when they packed in more, and some of the pilots were concerned that if they had a malfunction on takeoff or approach, they could possibly end up having a situation like this.

    Fortunately, according to all the news reports, people only sustained non life threatening injuries and nobody died.
